FAQs
 
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN WINDSURFING VS. KITEBOARDING?

Windsurf lessons will get you going in the water the first day, whereas kiteboarding takes multiple lessons to be able to kite safely solo. Kiteboarding lessons are individual, windsurfing lessons can be done privately or in a group. 

SHOULD I ARRIVE EARLY TO MY LESSON?

Yes, arrive 15  minutes prior to your scheduled time. 

HOW SHOULD I COME PREPARED TO MY LESSON?

Bring your bathing suit, your sunscreen and your smile.  We  provide the gear, wetsuits, life jackets, and booties.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I MAKE A RESERVATION?

The earlier the better but at least a couple days before your desired date. Weekends and holidays get booked quicker and additional reservation time may be needed.

WHERE CAN I CHECK THE WIND REPORT?
